Using kinetic Monte Carlo method we simulate the dynamics of biatomic Au_{0.3}Ni_{0.7} surface alloy separation on Ni(111) due to Ni(CO)_4 out-reaction. The experiment of Vestergaard et al. is modeled by counterbalancing dynamical processes and interactions between reactants. The simulations demonstrate step flow rate increase with CO coverage, c_{CO}, in qualitative agreement with the experiment only for c_{CO} ≲ 0.45 monolayer. Moreover, we demonstrate both CO influence on reaction process and Au domain formation.
